Electrical Safety for Data Centers

It is essential to have secure, cost-effective IT rooms and server centers in today's world. These centers require a reliable power supply so that problems do not arise. Failures and breakdowns within these IT systems and facilities can be costly. The permanent control of the quality of the electric power source allows any problems to be detected quickly and provides the necessary personnel the ability to tackle them effectively.

Data centers are designed to operate IT components without interruption and guarantee the availability of the IT system. Data centers must master high performance, availability, and optimum use of resources economically. They contain a variety of electrical equipment such as switching power supplies, high-speed data communication, and other factors can introduce electrical noise. Ground isolation transformers help filter out this noise, ensuring a clean power supply to the servers and other devices. To ensure high availability and electrical safety, complex power supply systems and components are used.

A failure or disturbance of these highly available IT systems can equal high costs. This can be recognized and deflected early, thanks to continuous monitoring of the quality of the electrical power supply. Monitoring critical functions such as temperature, humidity, dew point, fire, movement, etc., is part of the essential equipment for all data centers. Bender electrical safety solutions for data center systems also offer the option of permanent monitoring of the electrical supply and ensure safe operations, as even modern standard-compliant loads increasingly cause disturbances in electrical systems.

Each new year brings the advancements of evolving technologies and new technologies surrounding data centers globally. Among the main trends influencing these developments are the increasing demand for high-performance networks and the increased efficiency of network management. More and more companies are moving to the cloud, and this trend will only accelerate in the coming years. Many companies have found that they need to keep financial, health, and other sensitive data in the private cloud. This creates a critical need for reliable systems 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Bender remains committed to developing innovative solutions for electrical safety for data centers as the markets continue to change and advance with these ever-evolving trends.
